Tornadoes

Path easily visible.

All of us live with things we'd rather not think about. Whether earthquakes, hurricanes, floods or snowstorms, it's easier to just hope they don't happen. Where I live it's tornadoes, and we saw this past week we really do have to think about them.

Double-duty Lenses

D700, 70-200mm lens.

I led two big photo trips in March and April, to Botswana and Ecuador. Both times I took the same main kit of photo gear.
